THEIR STORY SO FAR...
Turn the lights on, fire up the crowd...
With a vision and a song, brothers Nolan and Ethan Wilde are set out to make their mark in the music industry. Growing up in Kettle & Stony Point first nation, Nolan and Ethan were raised on being humble, working for what they got, and a wide variety of good music. Playing a unique style of country-fried roots rock for the past 4 years, the brothers have already found their calling after winning the 2019 NACMAI Country Duo of the Year in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. In 2022 the brothers were nominated for the 2022 Forest City London World Music Group of the year. Playing prestigious shows and festivals such as the 2021 CCMA Awards Launch Party, Bluewater Borderfest, Westfest, Tkaronto Music Festival, and the Summer Solstice Indigenous Festival, the boys share their original songs such as Roots, Good Day, Waiting for you, and many more that best describe who they are and where they come from. With the release of an upcoming EP approaching, these young men are prepared to give the world a good feeling and show them something they’ve never seen.
Although their music keeps them busy they still find the time to volunteer, mentoring other youth in song-writing and, entertaining seniors at their communities Assisted Living Facility.
These proud Ojibwe men are proud of their roots and family is the most important thing to them.
Their music is influenced by Chris Stapleton, Brothers Osborne, Eric Church and their frequent collaborator... their father Garnet Wilde. An old rocker himself, he has given them the traditional knowledge of living with the land combined with standing in the spotlight. Now with the writing of their upcoming album their star is burning brighter than ever.
